Jan Shutt of Sunday Best commented 'The show was absolutely fantastic! I spent the whole of Sunday and Monday at Pure London and could have easily come back for a third day. The Spirit section is brilliant, a very strong selection of young brands. I discovered some great new labels there. Lauren Vidal and Mais il est ou le soeil? were fantastic collections in Studio and the Accessory and Footwear sections were just mind blowing, I found and bought Tamara Fogal and Big Metal which is knock out. Pure London is a show not to be missed'

Attendance from UK buyers was up by 9%* with all the key UK Stores attending, including Fenwick, Harvey Nichols, Harrods, ASOS, Selfridges, House of Fraser, John Lewis, Debenhams and McElhinneys from Ireland, as well as key independent retailers such as Flow, Psyche, Stone, Richmond Classics and Stuff.

Janet Desplaces owner of L'attire in Mallorca commented 'I have really enjoyed the show however I need two days to look around. I am here looking at natural fabrics and have found what I am looking for, the ethical brands are great! I was surprised at the number of stands in the current climate. I will definitely be coming back next season'

In addition to an excellent attendance, exhibitors confirmed that they were seeing quality buyers who were writing strong orders at the show as well as making a lot of new contacts.

'This is our first time showing at Pure London and it has been a great success. We have opened new accounts with top retailers.' Commented Kate McDonald from SuperTrash.

The Spirit section was a huge success with an increase in amazing new brands. London based label Arrogant Cat returned to Pure London after missing a few seasons. Laura Galligan, PR manager said 'The show has been really good for us. It has got our name out there again with our customers. The feedback we have had from our collection being on the catwalk is fantastic. It's been a really good show.'

An even stronger line up of Ethical exhibitors were back with over 50 ethical brands edited into the show by price point and style including People Tree, Jackpot Organic, Miksani, Komodo, Wellicious and Monkee Genes. Ethical seminars and walks were hosted on Sunday and Monday educating visitors and communicating the stories behind some of the top ethical brands at Pure London.
